FLV Media Player is an extremely simple and easy-to-use Flash and MPEG-4 video player that provides a very high-quality viewing experience. Its support for High Definition videos allows you to enjoy clear and sharp images even when in full-screen mode. You can load any number of FLV, F4V, MOV, or MP4 video files, and FLV Media Player will play them back sequentially for you.

This free Flash video player comes with everything you need to enjoy watching, for instance, your favorite YouTube videos. Files can be loaded into the player either by using a standard “Open file” dialog or by dragging and dropping any supported file directly into the program’s interface. Though advertised as a player that allows you to “create personal playlists”, support for these is nowhere to be found. My guess is that “playlists” here may refer to the possibility of queuing any number of video files. Most video players will play back a video file until you load a different one – when this happens, the player starts playing back the new one while forgetting completely about the previous one. FLV Media Player allows you to add various files at once – it will play them back sequentially, but will also give you the possibility of moving to the next or the previous video at any time. Certainly, this feature could be considered as “playlist” support, except for the fact that the selection disappears in thin air as soon as you close the player.

Playlist support or not, this free player is a serious alternative to better known playback tools, especially those with no support for “sequential viewing”.
